    Default The Bike Shed -> Hutch Project

    As you may know I purchased one of these a few weeks ago to convert into a rabbit hutch:
    http://www.waltons.co.uk/garden-shed...-store-shiplap

    Didn't realise quite how much work would be involved!
    It only came with a 'base-coat' so I also had to paint it and I chose the Seasoned Oak Cuprinol Garden Shades.

    Here it is newly erected but empty:


    Then I had to create a frame so that it would have two floors inside it:


    Added the floors:


    Left a specific sized hole in the bottom floor for the litter trays I use:



    Had to add some panels and doors on the right hand side so the buns can get some light and go in and out:




    Then I put some sticky back plastic over the floors to make them easy to wipe clean and so they don't absorb bunny mess!


    I have ordered the new run, so my work isn't finished yet, doh!
    Probably going to have 4 small/medium bunnies living in there with a 12ft x 6ft run attached, but if that doesn't work out there will be just two in there with a 6ft x 6ft run.

    It looked quite good until I added the stick back plastic didn't it?

    looks like you've put a lot of hard work and thought into it and it's paid off - lovely job and I'm sure any rabbits you get will be proud to call it home

    I love the way that this has taken priority over the other projects e.g. fence panels .
